Ellen was right when she noted that "one time completed action" is just
one of the nuances that the aorist can take. A great paper comes to
mind by John Stackhouse (I think?) entitled _The Abused Aorist_ (I do
not have any of the publication details immediately to hand), and you
would find this a very helpful read.
